    Parker, ALT is NOT the HTML standard for tooltips, the TITLE tag is. ALT is meant for users who do not want to load pictures but would still like to know what it shows. TITLE works flawlessly in Mozilla, Opera and IE. If you want to be sure that everything works you can of course use TITLE and ALT.
    More information and examples you will find here:

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the "tip". Now if you could do something for me I would appreciate it you decreased the size you are using with your font.

    Hmm, the font size must be an IE specific problem, it looks normal in Opera and Mozilla. I didn't add font size so I have no idea why Tahoma is shown this big. I have changed it back to normal. Thanks for the information.

    Maybe you could try using Tahoma and then size of 2 or something like that. If you used no size I am pretty sure that was the deal.
